Cameron Alexander Dallas is the product of his generation. A generation that grew upon a staple diet of social media frenzy and short attention spans. If you haven’t heard of Cameron Dallas, it most probably means that you are a Luddite who is well past his/her adolescent years. Well, don’t beat yourself up. Here is your guide to the 21-year old internet phenomenon whose meteoric rise is a testimony to the changing landscape of the entertainment industry.
Back in 2013, the world was introduced to a new social-media platform called ‘Vine’, where users could share and watch 6-second-long looping video clips. It was only a matter of time, before the popularity of ‘Vine’ soared, thanks largely to a host of celebrities who quickly jumped on the bandwagon.
Cameron Dallas was shrewd enough to see the potential of this new sensation. The lanky Californian, who already had a considerable fan following on ‘Instagram’, saw the GIF-like brevity of ‘Vine’ as the ideal platform to showcase his zany sense of humor and striking good looks. And just like that, things started to fall in place for him.
